Bermuda’s beaches are well worth visiting. Some have long stretches of Bermuda’s famous pink sand; others lie on the edge of tiny, secluded coves. Any Bermuda beach is delightful, but those recommended for snorkeling include Church Bay Beach on the south shore and Tobacco Bay Beach near St. George’s Town.
At Elbow Beach or Horseshoe Bay on the south shore, you can rent equipment for water sports.
Ships depart from several East Coast ports, including Boston, New York, Philadelphia, Baltimore, Norfolk, Charleston and Fort Lauderdale.
